Re: Trouble with BSP

Yes - with troubles like this you can always should try to upgrade drivers. Of course graphic driver is most important in this case. Download new driver, uninstall old driver, install new driver.

Re: Trouble with BSP

Whats wrong with Vista? I have had it for a little over a year not a single problem.

anyways when upgrading your driver make sure you get the right upgrades if you don't know what your graphics card is do this.

Do Start

Hit run "For vista should be the search thing at the bottom"

Type in DXdiag and hit enter

A screen should pop up and there should be several tabs at the top of that screen, hit the Display tab

In the device section of this tab should say the graphics card manufacturer and what type of graphics card you have.

Write down the company's name and search for driver upgrades then enjoy =P

Re: Trouble with BSP

Okay - put the name of your graphic card here. Right mouse click on desktop. Choose Properties. Click on last tab called Settings, now in the middle you can see something like this:

Display:
Monitor blablabla on your graphic card name here.

Its impossible to have both Ati and Nvidia cards in one PC. So you should install Radeon drivers if u have Ati Radeon, or NVidia drivers if u have GeForce card. And NVidia drivers are free. No idea why u want to pay for that.

Re: Trouble with BSP

Now go into Computer and look a little below file/edit bar and there should be a computer image with a check that says system properties click on it. Also run the game as adminstrator. Downloading the latest Directx could help too.

  • Legendary Da : Hi everyone, I have one (or two) quick question about BS:M modding. I try to figure out sp mapmaking, and my first act on it was to convert a MP map to SP. However I can only play as Allies in those maps. What parameter do I have to change to play those maps as Japanese in the respective map .mpak (And where is the parameter I have to change?)?
  • N_Trainz : G'day mates, I just wanted to let those who use Windows 10 and also for those who are having troubles getting the game launching because of Games for Windows LIVE, I made a tutorial of how to get it working successfully again like on Windows 8.1. Its on my channel and here's the link to the video. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : The dictator, I downloaded the mmod2txm and I added four slots to the fletcher and a couple to the lexington.Thanks for the help though.
  • The Dictator : Makeo67 i've explained how to find the unused slots in the topic and the mmod2txm it's a program that has been shared. However there aren't so many ships with unused platforms and sme of them are in wrong positions and for move them you need to know how to change the mmod file. But if you know how to do it you can make new platfors as you want. I've shared the south dakota disposition and this one is the most intersting in my opinion
  • N_Trainz : Well it looks like we have spammers again
  • Mokeo67 : No problem Thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : Not really
  • Mokeo67 : Ok thanks anyway. Do you know who does?
  • Axis_Crusher : Unfortunately I don't deal with that part of modding
  • Mokeo67 : Sorry forgot the link. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : This is the forum topic I meant. The dictator said he found the unused slots in the TXM file obtainable with the mmod2txm, what is this and is it available to use.
  • Axis_Crusher : This is your best bet: «link»
  • Mokeo67 : Also I saw on the forum that ships have unused platform slots. How do I use these?
  • Mokeo67 : I tried changing the bogue class carrier to a yorktown class in the phillipene sea mission and one of two things happened. The mission either didnt change or the game crashed.
  • Axis_Crusher : No problem
  • Mokeo67 : That is what im talking about. Ill have a look at it later thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : specific mission’s 3_scene mpak file by working on the .lua file. There is where the bonus unit is actually added into the mission (by the script). I haven't tried it myself so good luck.
  • Axis_Crusher : I assume you are talking about the bonus units that you unlock for certain missions by completing previous ones (like the B - 25’s in the 2nd Battle of Guadalcanal). The bonus units are unlocked by completing certain objectives in the campaign - so that is linked to your campaign progress. Since that cannot be altered you must look at the missiontree.lua file. This is where the unit will show up unlocked on the mission screen. There are references to allunitslock. Also you will have to edit the
  • Mokeo67 : Thank you I will look in this file. I did unlock all the campaign missions, all you have to do is delete the text after 'prerequisite' and it will unlock. But I havent figured out how to unlock the bonus units.
  • Axis_Crusher : I also prefer it being off, just as most of the BSM community. Most players, however prefer repair to be enabled so that is what we should do. Most of our maps it will be disabled through the script however. If you want to play with the game's repair settings you can find it under shipglobals.lua
